The very first Kiwanis Club of Abilene Pancake day was held in the Windsor Hotel in 1940. Since its inception, Pancake Day has only been canceled twice in the clubs' history. Once during WWII and recently during the Pandemic.

The Kiwanis Club of Abilene's Pancake Day and Auction benefits many organizations within our community, like the Boys and Girls Club, New Horizons, Hendrick Home for Children, Christian Homes for Children, Christian Service Center, the Ben Ritchie Boys Ranch, and so many more.

The Kiwanis Pancake Day motto is "remember kids need Kiwanis and Kiwanis need you to come to eat pancakes." Besides, it's the Kiwanis' biggest fundraiser of the year. So, if you would like to donate, volunteer, or need any additional information please call 325-673-1341.

LOOK: 50 famous memes and what they mean

With the infinite number of memes scattered across the internet, it's hard to keep track. Just when you've grasped the meaning of one hilarious meme, it has already become old news and replaced by something equally as enigmatic. Online forums like Tumblr, Twitter, 4chan, and Reddit are responsible for a majority of meme infections, and with the constant posting and sharing, finding the source of an original meme is easier said than done. Stacker hunted through internet resources, pop culture publications, and databases like Know Your Meme to find 50 different memes and what they mean. While the almost self-replicating nature of these vague symbols can get exhausting, memes in their essence can also bring people closer together—as long as they have internet access.
